There's an old joke about a doctor who gives a patient a year to live. The patient says he can't pay, so the doctor gives him another six months.
That's how I felt when I read this:
New estimates from a Norwegian research project show meeting targets for minimizing global warming may be more achievable than previously thought. After the planet’s average surface temperature rose through the 1990s, the increase has almost leveled off at the level of 2000, while ocean water temperature has also stabilized, the Research Council of Norway said in a statement on its website.
I have no idea if this is correct, but I know about a decade ago people were saying if we don't do something big in ten years, it'll be too late. Since then, I've been waiting for us to hit that tipping point, so even though we'd be doomed, at least we could do what we want. It's quite disappointing to find out they'll keep extending the deadline until we do what they say.
